Pilbara reports increased July trade

(Posted on 16/08/18)

Pilbara Ports Authority (PPA) has delivered a total monthly throughput of 56.1 million tonnes (Mt) for the month of July 2018. This was an increase of 6% from the same month in 2017.

PPA was established on 1 July 2014 as a result of the Ports Legislation Amendment Act 2014 consolidating seven of WA’s eight port authorities into four new regional port authorities. The former port authorities of Dampier and Port Hedland successfully amalgamated and formed PPA.

The Port of Port Hedland achieved a monthly throughput of 41.5Mt. This was an increase of 7% from July 2017. Iron ore exports from the Port of Port Hedland totalled 40.7Mt, an increase of 7% from July last year.

Imports through the Port of Port Hedland totalled 171,000 tonnes, an increase of 27% from the same month in 2017. The Port of Dampier delivered a total monthly throughput of 13.8Mt, a decrease of 3% from July 2017.

Imports through the Port of Dampier totalled 108,000 tonnes, an increase of 52% from the same month last year.
